Keypad is model 318K
receiver is model 318R
factory setting for keypad PIN is 0000 #
there is no master reset code
you must have the current code to reset the PIN
if you hit the correct code on the keypad followed by the # key - you will get three beeps.
to change the PIN: (current PIN needed)
enter current 4 digit PIN then *
enter new 4 digit PIN followed by *
reenter new 4 digit pin and *
if accepted - backlight will flash and will sound one long beep
takes 2 CR2032 button cells for keypad
you could sit in a chair one night and start at 0000# then 0001# etc until you get three beeps
then use above procedure to change to your desired code
good luck

Push the button on the side of the receiver, then push the button on the remote. That should program the receiver to accept the transmitter. To unprogram all the old transmitters, hold down the button on the side of the receiver until it starts flashing quickly-about 10 seconds.Then program the new one as above. (if this were the old dip switch type, you'd open up the receiver box to read/set the switches)

You might want to look inside the box (can't think of the name that lifts the garage door). it may be written there or be obvious by switches.

Alarm not beeping when doors are open. led on door goes red when door is opened and alarm box has red and green lights when alarm is actived but not chimes or alarm when doors are opened

When a zone has both red and green lights on, it means that it is in delay mode. That means when the sensor is triggered, the system will wait for a predefined time interval (30 seconds) for user to reset the trigger. During this time interval, the system will not beep or alarm. But after that, if user does not reset the trigger, system will go off.

User can reset the trigger from keypad or by remote.

When I push in my code on my keypad to gain access, the door won't open and the keypad blinks 5 times. I am out of town and I have pets that need to be fed. Please help

Your keypad could have just quit working or the receiver in the motor unit could have failed. You will have to find another way into the house until you return home and try your car remote. Then you will know if it is the keypad or the receiver.

You will have to have access to the outside keypad and the motor head. Make sure there is a new battery in the keypad. Press the 3 -6-enter buttons at the same time to erase. Then press 357-prog, then press the 4 digit code-prog. Then go up to the motor unit and press the learn button. Go back to the keypad and press the 4 digit code followed by the up/down button, press the up/down button 2-3 more times and the door should move. If you have a black keypad this will not work, ask again with this info if needed. Thanks BB

Your keypad may be bad. If you press and immediately release the smart/learn button and then key in your 4 digit code and press enter the keypad should be working. Be sure you have a good battery. Actually the flashing of the keypad is indicating that it is sending the signal to the receiver. Holding the enter button in doesn't do anything extra.

Lights on overhead unit on garage door opener will not go off

This is not too uncommon. What tripped the breaker in your house also got to one of the relays on the logic board of your opener. The only cure I know of is a new logic board.
